This week in 4B..

Happy Monday!  
I hope everyone enjoyed their Sunday Snow!

A couple reminders: 
-GAME DAY tomorrow!  Students are allowed to bring their technology for free time.  Please send electronics at your own risk.  Your child is responsible.
-Please sign and return Math tests that are going home today.  Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to come in and view your child's test.  
-Don't forget to bring library books on Wednesday!
-Please make sure your child arrives at school promptly.  They have Giving Assembly jobs that they are very excited about this week that begin as soon as the bell rings. 
-Don't forget Old Bohomme's first book fair of the school year is being held at the Ladue Barnes & Noble the weekend of Nov 21st-23rd3!  Mr. Hearn's choir will be performing at the store Friday night at 6:30, and there will be a table set up with books you can purchase from OB teachers' wish lists. This is a great way to contribute to your child's classroom library!  Don't worry if you can't make it there on Friday--the OB library will get a percentage of purchases for the entire weekend as long as you mention Old Bonhommeduring your purchase!  If you have any questions, please contact Susan Kelley at  

"We took our Math tests and did great even thought it was a hard test!  Our multiplication timed math facts went good too.  We have a letter in our folders to explain our new unit."  -Maddie

"In Science, with Mrs. Shockley we are learning about rocks and soil." -Max 

"In Reading we are working on Wordmasters to build our vocabulary, we took a quiz on adverbs, we learned how to make inferences while we read AND we got new spelling words."  -Rami

"We are finishing up our opinion writing pieces. Today we worked on revising and editing."

"Today in poetry we learned with Mrs. Grigsby how to make haikus and lunes.  They are in our writers notebooks." -Addie

Have a wonderful week!
